Recipe: Low-Carb Creamy Sun-dried Tomato Chicken

Low-Carb Creamy Sun-dried Tomato Chicken

The trick to making this chicken super flavorful is using lots of garlic. I usually opt in for at least 3-4 cloves but if you’re not a fan of garlic I suggest using at least 2 cloves. For the base, I like to use heavy cream (great keto option) but half & half or substituting half the heavy cream with chicken broth or water will also work. I also like to add in a cup or two or baby spinach to the sauce for some added color and texture but that’s completely optional.

To serve: You can add 2-3 cups of cooked pasta into the saucepan and mix it through with the sauce for a complete “one pan” meal or serve the chicken on top of the pasta.
